This looks to be a 4-hour baseball game.  A low scoring 4-hour baseball game.

Peacock has been ok, but he is at near 100 pitches after 4 innings.

Peacock gets a 1-2-3 inning in the 5th. Maybe he was just getting warmed up. (also, Marisnick made a nice catch).

Carter just smoked one to LF. Game tied 2-2.

Chris Carter is a strong man.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

By my calculations, that brings his Astro AVG to .297.

Yes! About time Grossman made a good throw to nail someone at the plate.

Buchanan gives way to Fields, having tossed 3 scoreless innings in a tie game. Not bad, not bad.

I'm not sure I've ever seen anything quite like that outside of a softball game.

Ball slapped opposite field by Mauer, Santana fielded the ball in left, looked up, didn't have a cutoff man to throw to, so instead of just throwing in to second or to someone standing around, he elects to crow hop 150 times toward home, and whoever the fucktard Twin on 3rd was trotted home when Santana's throw went wildly up the 3rd base line.
